This may or may not be obvious but keep your eye on the puck in the refs hand not on the face off dot and react the moment he drops the puck, it will fall faster than you think.
Also I've talked about this with friends who ref and play and even they say some days are good days for them in the face off circle and other days even they don't have it. Some times it's the refs technique that's the trouble not the opposition.
When in the defensive zone it may not be winning the face off as your key but preventing the other one from wining it clean to the blue line, just tie him up and get your wingers to come in and get it.
